Duality, Geometry, and Support Vector Regression

  title={Duality, Geometry, and Support Vector Regression},
  author={J. Bi and K. P. Bennett},
We develop an intuitive geometric framework for support vector regression (SVR). By examining when ǫ-tubes exist, we show that SVR can be regarded as a classification problem in the dual space. Hard and soft ǫ-tubes are constructed by separating the convex or reduced convex hulls respectively of the training data with the response variable shifted up and down by ǫ. A novel SVR model is proposed based on choosing the max-margin plane between the two shifted datasets. Maximizing the margin… CONTINUE READING
